The E-MOSION AAL project aims at enabling integral outdoor and indoor localization and mobility services for elderly people with age-related sensory (visual, auditory) and cognitive (memory) impairments that help them in their daily routine activities far from home. Special attention is given to key activities for their autonomous living (e.g. shopping, banking) and with a particular societal benefit (e.g. accompanying grandchildren); procuring active and convenient engagement of all relevant stakeholders (relatives, health-social-security services, establishments).
The WiBRATE European FP7 project explores new paradigms for vibration monitoring and control using wireless intelligent sensors that power themselves using harvested vibration energy.
The project contributes directly to strengthening the European market in several key sectors such as quality control systems, safety systems, wireless communication and industrial automation and control systems.
The PoPJIM (Plug and Produce Joint Interface Modules) European FP7 project introduces advanced concepts beyond the state of the art in the domain of intelligent machine-tools that enable high precision mass customization and machining of complex components with zero defects. The increased accuracy of machines and processes can offer substantial benefits to a wide range of applications that demand high quality and reliability of the machining process.
The aim of the Smart Contextual Services (SmaCs) project is to provide contextual services to people in various environments and use cases. Networked sensors and lighting elements in combination with users’ body-area networks are used in indoor retail environments. The project addresses new embedded intelligence design patterns and their translation to business models.
The objective of IS-ACTIVE is to devise a person-centric healthcare solution for patients with chronic conditions – especially elderly people – based on the recent advances in wireless inertial sensing systems. Results are to be validated through field trials involving patients suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which became the fourth cause of death worldwide.
SENIOR will build interactive home-based systems based on miniaturized wireless sensors for monitoring and supporting the wellbeing and health of people, particularly elderly, in their everyday life. SENIOR is a an iniatiative within the program of economical innovation Pieken in de Delta Oost-Nederland. The project brings together high-tech companies, research institutes and healthcare centers.
